It diminishes the respectability of our field when psychologists promote blatantly political agendas that lack empirical support. Technically, one could say that such behavior is unethical, but that will never fly with the APA.


Indeed. And those who speak out are subject to harassment:

"Today, psychologists or psychiatrists who disagree with this politically correct interpretation, or even those who try to help homosexuals change, are subjected to continual harassment and accusations of malpractice."

- Dr. James Dobson ( source ).


A real life example of such harassment and accusations of malpractice:

I wonder if she believes that suggestions about whether or not certain behaviors are normal or not is oppressive, or must one enter the realm of defining certain behaviors as normal or not, to risk the wrath of the leftist Glassgold thought-police?

Either way, it appears that she desires a mix of leftist amoral philosophy and leftist amoral psychiatry. Then again, psychiatry is just barely above philosophy to begin with.

Oh no, was I being 'oppressive' by even bringing up these points?

No, no, no... leftist, amoral theories must never, ever be thrown in the crapper. To throw their ideas in the crapper is one of the most oppressive things one can do, or didn't you know that?

She urges gay psychologists to adopt the philospohy of Liberation Psychology (Martin-Baro, 1994), which is rooted in ideologies from Latin and South American countries.

Isn't she talking about Trotskyite and Maoist South American radicals instead? IIRC "liberation theology" is either spoonfed KGB Active Measures garbage, or COMINTERN-mediated Trotskyism, such as the Mexican Left wallowed in during the 1920's. Someone who knows better, please correct me.

know there are good, rational, professional psychologists out there but every one I have met who is a psychologist or was studying to be one, seemed to need the most tratment

Truer words were never spoken! Most of them get into the field with an agenda. Sad but true. Or to make themselves feel better about their own screwed up life. They usually are very disfunctional people as a whole. If they don't find a problem in a patient, they are not hesitant to create one. I knew someone, they claim to discover had been abused as a child. THey implanted these memories, with the help of medication, of course!

Once she stopped taking the meds, she realized it was all BS

I feel for you, there you are trying to do some real good, make a real difference and help people, and all those lefties in your field are undoing everything you try to do, and giving Docs like you a bad name.

It has been reported that homosexuals constitute a majority on the APA board and have used this power to remove homosexuality from diagnostic standards. They have also worked to bring homosexuality into the mainstream as "normal" behavior. I don't know if this board is still a majority, but this article seems to say that some effort is still being done to wage this battle for normalcy in the face of a society that would prefer it to stay out of the headlines.

The fall, 2004 issue of the APA's Division 44 newsletter, includes an essay by Judith M. Glassgold, Psy.D. urging her colleagues to think of psychology as a liberationist tactic to fight against social oppression and for social justice.

This is unoriginal.

The Soviet Union already thought this one up, and implemented it for 70 years.

"Harassment"? Don't they get the equivalent of being disbarred from the APA?

"Gay psychologists must view the world as an oppressive place, and they must resist efforts of outside forces to label them."

You mean like this... ALL Homosexuals are diseased individuals seeking special privileges, special status and special laws over you and I in the name of a sick, perverted, aberrant, vile and disgusting behavioral choice.

I think the practice has always had the effect of indoctrinating the vulnerable in a premise system that is secular/humanist. pretty shabby that they would openly embrace it as a means to a collective end, however.

sort of like architects designing schools to "stimulate thinking." Thinking about foolish architectural boondogles, I suppose.

Psychologists must reject seeing individual personal problems and be willing to see these problems as the consequences of social injustice

98% of the world is wrong and the remaining, perverse 2% are suffering for it.

Obviously this person lives in a climate controlled environment at the specific point where stupid happens.
